Developers and customers who already own DaVinci Resolve 12 can continue to download and install the update, which will be available soon through the Mac App Store. There is no need to run the installer again.
To take advantage of the new features in DaVinci Resolve 12, you will need a Mac running OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 or later. Otherwise, you will be up-to-date. All free programs are available for the Mac from the Apple Store .
I've been using DaVinci Resolve 11 for a while now, and I still love it. After updating to the latest version, I wanted to share some of my favorite features and techniques. Here are some of the most useful free tutorials for editing your projects in DaVinci Resolve.
Resolve also has many creative features, such as the ability to animate your project, record audio, and save and export still frames. A free basic version is available (if you create projects in DaVinci Resolve, you'll probably want to upgrade to the fully featured version of the software). If you're just getting started, there is a free trial available (available for both Windows and Mac). And if you're already working with DaVinci Resolve, there is a great iPad app that allows you to browse and preview your footage.
Over time, you may find that one program works better for you than the other. But you don't have to choose one or the other. You can have both on hand to switch back and forth as needed. For example, you can use Resolve for more of the editing functions and, when you want to apply a color grade, you can pull footage into Premiere Pro to add more color to the image.
One of the reasons Adobe has been able to produce these two programs is that they're both based on the same engine, called Adobe Media Encoder. Although both Premiere Pro and Resolve can be used to edit video, audio, and other media, the two programs are designed specifically to edit film. With a bit more tweaking, you'll be able to use both programs to achieve the same results on video and audio, but it'll take some effort.
